Follow-up from yesterday's Virtual Lobby Day for a Healthy Democracy

2-18-21 Virtual Lobby Day for a Healthy DemocracyYesterday's Virtual Lobby Day for a Healthy Democracy was a big success, despite so many weather-related challenges. We had over 70 participants, had some good legislative meetings, a lobby training, social media training, letter to the editor training, spokesperson training, generated tons of calls to the legislative message line and good outreach through social media, and had a fantastic virtual rally with powerful stories in the afternoon.
